Hi everyone , here is a [b]GOOD NEWS[/b] story for you !

Six Irish paintings will BOUNCE off the MOON on Sunday next April 10th
VIA Radio waves to the MOON and back in 2.5 seconds
The paintings will be converted into radio waves , each colour in the paintings equals a note in music its an Newton idea.
The paintings will travel 500,000 miles and will return as altered versions of themselves with individual sound files unique to each painting.

The paintings will be sent to the Moon via large radio antennas in Brazil , the UK and Switzerland and received
in the Netherlands by a 25 Metre radio telescope all online to music created by Sonifonics a NASA developed sound out of images software .
